Low Cost Tire Options?

Are there any tires out there that aren't as expensive as OEM replacements? The cheapest I've found are Yokohamas at $280/front $300/rear. I'm getting track wheels/tires soon, so the rubber going on my stock wheels doesn't need to perform like the Michelins and should last longer than these have.

You'll have to look through the specs. Usually I pick the front or the rear then look at what sizes that brand may have that would fit on the other end. Height matching is what you want to do..
So just sort of surfing, you can get the Kumho's Ecsta SPT for the rear that fit in 275/35/19 and the stock size 245/35/19 for the fronts around $190 per tire.

As mightyaa mentioned, it depends on the size. If you look at the matching pairs stock 19" sizes, the Generals are not available because they are not made in the rear size.
